Face Mask Information
Prior to first use, it is recommended that you wash your mask. I recommend hand washing, or washing the mask in a mesh/lingerie bag. You may want to remove the elastic loops before you wash it. Elastic can be re-inserted into the casing using a safety pin or bobby pin.
Each loop of elastic has a loose knot in the end. If the loops do not feel snug enough as is, you can undo the knot and retie it so that the loops are tighter. Once the mask is snug enough, pull the knots tight. After that, you can slide the loop around so that the knot is inside the mask’s casing. If you need to make the loops significantly smaller, you may want to trim the elastic after knotting. When trimming elastic, leave a minimum of 1/2 inch length of elastic beyond the knot. To prevent the end of the elastic from fraying, a dab of nail polish or fray check brushed over the end will help to seal the edges.
